model 7 receiver

    No because its already been classified as a rifle receiver you would have to go with an xp 100 a custom action or one of the savage actions and build it up

    If you were to order a new, never assembled action direct from Remington you could build a pistol out of it. To use a Savage action it must be the same thing, a new, undesignated action. When it's transferred to you on the federal transfer form it will be sold as an action, not a rifle or pistol. It's the same thing that's done to build AR style pistols.

    There are some tricks to building a SP which will technically still meet the legal requirements of a rifle, allowing you to use a rifle action for the build. That's up to you to figure out though.

    As far as a stock, any custom stock maker will be able to inlet for any action you want.

    Looks like if the barrel is over 16" it would be legal. There is no requirement to type of stock

    If you meet the legal requirements of the barreled action, then the stock style does not matter.

    IF the barrel is longer than 16" AND the overall length of the weapon is 26" or more the BATF classifies it as a "Short Stocked Rifle" if it is a shotgun the barrel must over 18".

    If you use a "rifle" receiver, then the barrel MUST be greater than 16" and the assembled weapon MUST be greater than 26", if you intend to put a muzzle brake on it, that is a gray area, I would NOT use the muzzle brake in the above dimensions, as it is removable.
